Solomon man among six illegal immigrants in remand in Fiji

A Solomon Islands man (name not given) is one of six others from three Melanesian countries that the Fiji Immigration Department will deport shortly after they were found to be staying in the country illegally.

Director of Fiji Immigration Nemani Vuniwaqa said the men had been staying in Fiji illegally since 2008.

Mr Vuniwaqa said they had detained three from Papua New Guinea, two from Vanuatu and one from Solomon Islands until the next available flight back to their countries.

Mr Vuniwaqa said his department was working closely with the Fiji Police Force's intelligence bureau and transnational crime unit. Assistant police spokesman Suliano Tevita said two of the Papua New Guinea nationals were brothers who came in 2007 on student visas.
